That is too cool, Neil!!  Too bad you can't surprise them with it!

Wish I could get to the show!  It  would've been fun to surprise them with the art! Maybe next show we can do something special for them...

Yes, please! As long as they aren't limited to one per guest. But if there is a way to get more, please add me to the list!

Would it drive you guys completely nuts to know that there will be 2 color variations, yellow and orange, for the two days of the show?

Would be great if there was a way for forum members to get their hands on the promo cards. Especially since most cannot make it to the show. Would happily pay for them if that was an option. Would even be cool if there was an exclusive forum members promo card. Maybe it has a different back colour. Might be a good way to get extra members to sign up for the forum and see all the great work that is being done by members and artists to keep Wackys alive!

Hear! hear!

I have tickets to see Monsters at The Beach in Virginia Beach with the grandkids that weekend.  Even without the conflict, Philly is just too long of a trip for these old bones for just a weekend.

Not that it matters, but the show is next weekend, 5/20-21. For clarity to all, and to all, a good night. lol

My use of "this" weekend implies the one coming up when I meant it to mean the weekend of the show.  Sorry for being ambiguous.  Thanks for keeping us straight, Bigtomi.

In true GPK fashion, they had to include snot?  I understand the reasoning to appeal to the GPK buyers too, and I do get the reference to the old playground joke about Chiffon, but the snot, fart, and poop jokes are a turn off to me since I'm not 9 years old anymore.  Call me a purist, but to be a true WP joke, I would have preferred something along the lines of Sneez-It and maybe a different tagline that didn't use the word snot.

Hopefully I will have the same luck as last time and find someone here to hook me up with the promos. Loving the sub parodies!! It's in the same vein as Neil's Camera parodies (which I would still love to buy a set if he ever produces them). The outer box could even look like an old Kodak or Polaroid film box.

I do understand the not liking the humor on the Philly Wacky, I totally agree with the bodily functions are just not our cup of tea.  However the venue that these are distributed at are 10-1 GPK vs Wacky collectors.  Unfortunately, we are now in the minority.

Agreed.
